ABS wears and becomes shiny waaaaay too quick, and I've noticed this especially with the stock keycaps that come on Corsair boards.
Yep, hopefully not much longer to wait till we can get our hands on these new keycaps

I'm subscribing to this thread so I can buy a set of black PBT doubleshot keycaps as soon as you release them, Corsair.

Another thing to say about this. If the legends are upside down like on the new Strafe and Lux keyboards then I won't be buying these. Adult gamers don't want non standard bottom row, goofy font, different size, upside down legend keycaps.

I agree with him. I definitely prefer the older KXX keyboard font to the newer Strafe's font that all the keyboards use now.

I agree the old font is better but I don't mind the new one, and I actually wouldn't mind seeing keys with multiple symbols have the symbols side-by-side for better illumination (e.x. " ? / "). But upside down doesn't really both me either.

Mostly I just want PBT.

Woah!

I prefer the Strafe font. It's a gaming keyboard, and this type of font lets more light through. Isn't that the point really? As for "grown up gamers" I resemble that remark (the wife would beg to differ ) and love the charm of the strafe keyboard, warts and all.

P.S. How are those keycaps coming along? Not sure how much longer I can keep this kidney preserved

Black Keycaps + PBT


The font of the K70 RGB Rapidfire (same as Strafe?) is good. But please no "upside down" fonts! All keys with two level printings are inverted

The project is still going, but I am not allowed to comment on anything else.

I agree, and definitely , if I knew the keyboard come with this new layout , I would not buy . Reminding that the picture shown in the Amazon , where it was bought , does not appear this layout change.

Now I'm trying to solve this problem with the Corsair Support , and the best answer so far is that I buy new keycaps or other keyboard (spend more money on a gadget that costs U$ 150,00).

I just realized that the Strafe RGB keycaps are narrower than normal. I was wondering why I was finding it hard to type. Now I know. This is another stupid change that no one asked for.

Wow really? I've got many various keyboards and if anything I find the Strafe amazing to touch type on. In fact I'm almost certain it's improved my accuracy and speed.

I'm really loving my K65 and the only thing i can think of that would make it better is a nice set of black PBT key caps. I've put my vote in, and really hope this eventually gets made.fingers crossed
